Last Day for the Christmas Garden

Thank you to all our supporters for a very good 2016/2017 season! Have a safe and happy 2017 and we look forward to seeing everyone back in November!
Happy New Year!
As 2016 comes to a close, we would like to wish all of our followers and supporters a very happy and safe new year.
2016 saw many accomplishments for our company. Some of which included, our brand new 2016 Pierce Engine being put in service, our 1996 Quality Engine being bought back and after some major repairs being put back in service, finding a replacement medic unit after ours was totalled and put into service and a TREMENDOUS increase in the amount of time we put our medic unit on the street, just to name a few. We are looking forward to an even better year for 2017! We couldn't do it without the support of the Dundalk community and areas surrounding.
Remember, if you're out celebrating tonight, please use a designated driver. We don't want to respond to any emergencies because someone made a bad decision and decided to drink and drive.
Again, thank you for your loyal support and here's to an even better year in 2017!
